and their respective wives, jill biden and michelle obama. one key for the president here is to try to convince independent voters to stick with them but that hill got a little bit higher to climb with the jobs numbers coming out this morning, 96,000 jobs provided during the month of august, for every job provided four other americans gave up looking for work. here is the president speaking last night at the convention, encouraging people to stick with him. >> if you buy into the cynicism that the change we fought for isn't possible, well, change will not happen. if you give up on the idea that your voice can make a difference then other voices will fill the void, the lobbyists and special interests, the people with the ten million dollars checks who are trying to buy this election. >> reporter: never mind that the democratic national convention just like the republican convention was chalked full with special interest and corporate interest paying for musicians, parties, booze, you name it. one difficulty tee is that the mitt romney campaign is releasing a barrage of attack ads in eight swing
